Austenitic SS 310 Fittings and Flanges

Austenitic SS 310 Fittings and Flanges

SS 310 stainless steel flange and 310 stainless steel fittings are 18-8 austenitic stainless steel flanges, with their Chromium-Nickel combination being heat resistant and oxidation resistant. SS 310 flanges is an austenitic stainless steel developed for use in high temperature corrosion resistant applications.
